Manager of Recruitment and Retention at Home Healthcare with Bayshore

She has been with the organization for six years in various positions from scheduling to her current position where she focuses on ensuring a positive and long-lasting relationship with all employees.

Director of Operations at Pacific Coast Health Services
Twyla Johnson is the Director of Operations at Pacific Coast Health Services in Victoria, BC. Over the past 25 years, Twyla has practiced nursing during several unexpected community events. While working in upstate New York, the devastating Northeast ice storm of 1998 had historic impacts due to the prolonged duration of the event. Later in 2001, while nursing at The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore MD, Twyla experienced not only the professional effects of the events of 9/11 but also the effects those events had on the mental wellbeing of her colleagues. Because of these community-wide events, as well as other more personal ones experienced within her practice, Twyla has developed a keen interest in how care professionals perceive trauma and react when their community is in crisis. This also led Twyla to become a Certified Hypnotherapist in order to help others overcome trauma and anxiety.
